Although the possibility of the federal government defaulting on debt is zero unless Congress chooses to do so, pragmatic teabagging legislators in Virginia are studying the possiblity of issuing their own currency. Just in case. “Are we seriously going to spend taxpayer resources studying a replacement to the world’s backbone currency? Are we descending into la-la land?” said Del. Mark D. Sickles (Fairfax), the Democratic Caucus chairman, in an interview last month.http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/virginia-coin...

"Are we descending into la-la land?"^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^Perhaps a vacation to Greece or an island getaway to Cyprus?Then maybe a short trip into Italy and Spain.Howie52When folks start to wonder how debts are to be paid but they see onlyactions that keep on going farther into debt, there will be some whoask if there is any real intention of ever repaying anyone.Now, if you ask the question "What if the US defaults?" most folks wouldprobably not first think about asking Virginia to intercede.The world is increasingly a strange place - but I am encouraged by ournew Pope. He seems to showing a path toward sanity.More leaders should follow his path.
